My Umax home station

This picture shows the Wi-Max receiver and the wireless router at my house… by the way, Wi-max is the name of the technology and Umax is the brand name for the service…

Umniah gives you the receiver on a rent base which is the 6JD per month.. if you find the receiver too big, then you will be happy to know that Umniah will soon provide a small USB devices.

The wireless router which you get is for free if you pay 1 year in advance and 50% discount if you pay for 6months… which is a good deal :) Now i can blog from the bathroom

But before you decide to use this service.. make sure that your area is covered. For me I was lucky enough to take one of my friends receivers and tested the signal before I went to Umniah.. but even the signal test may also fail you, so you may also try to login using your friend’s account :) don’t ask me to do so.. i don’t know my father now ;)

    Will they be offering the USB any soon? And if you sign up now, will the USB antenna be offered for free?

    I think the most amazing thing about this Umax is you can use your own internet connection anywhere inside the coverage area

    How’s the speed? Any drops?

    You Know Qwaider… I believe its better than ADSL. My in-laws got 1MB ADSL line I believe my connection is better.

    Firas, yes they will provide USB devices soon, but i think they need to expand the coverage area more . The USB device is going to be sold I think.
